Maintaining Muscle Mass while Traveling

This past February, my girlfriend and I went on a 4-week trip around Europe, and our second stop was Ireland. We happened to find a great gym (Inspire Gym, Larne, Northern Ireland), so we took full advantage of it when we weren't spending time touring the beautiful countryside.

More often than not, I tend to do full body workouts when on the road, because I don't necessarily want to spend a lot of time training, and I wont be training as frequently as I normally do, especially if I'm planning to do a lot of walking, hiking, or other activities. 

For these maintenance workouts, I'm always sure to focus on my weak areas and to work in a moderate intensity range that will help to maintain muscle mass and strength.

Do you struggle with maintaining your fitness while traveling? Let me know in the comments!
